Louise Jones Letter


Baton Rouge

January 21, 1943

During the past year many of our young ladies have generously given much of their time toward the entertainment of our soldiers in the various camps throughout the state.  Dances at the Camp Service Clubs, sponsored by the Special Service Officers and supervised by the Official Hostesses, have been a popular form of entertainment.  The many evenings given up by the girls dancing and chatting with the soldiers are greatly appreciated by all the man in uniform.

With the increase in the number of young men brought into the Army there is a greater need for more and more dancing partners.  Every effort is being made to arrange for as large attendance of girls as possible, by the Chairman of the Committee in your community, Now that so many eighteen and nineteen year old men are in the army it means much to have the dances well attended by our girls.  Just imagine what pleasure it would give to your son or your brother to have an attractive young lady in the wholesome atmosphere of the Camp Service Clubs.

Transportation will be provided to and from the dances and the girls will be strictly chaperoned the entire evening.  It is hoped that those girls who have been attending the dances will, by all means, continue to do so and that each girl will try to bring at least one friend.

I know that you will assist us to make these popular dances a continued success and thereby earn the gratitude of our boys in uniform.
